Arsenal are out of the running to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco but remain eager to add Thomas Lemar to their squad. Although, adding the winger could lead Arsenal to allow Alexis Sanchez to leave the club.
The Telegraph says Arsene Wenger has been cautious about the departure of either Sanchez or Olivier Giroud up until now because he is unsure about his chances of landing Lemar, a player for whom he has already seen two bids rejected.
The report goes on to say that Sanchez and Giroud are unsettled but Wenger is mindful of leaving himself short of attacking options. However, he is more confident that Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are happy to remain at the club despite entering the final year of their contracts.
